External Ids for CD3G Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is the CD3-gamma polypeptide, which together with CD3-epsilon, -delta and -zeta, and the T-cell receptor alpha/beta and gamma/delta heterodimers, forms the T-cell receptor-CD3 complex. This complex plays an important role in coupling antigen recognition to several intracellular signal-transduction pathways. The genes encoding the epsilon, gamma and delta polypeptides are located in the same cluster on chromosome 11. Defects in this gene are associated with T cell immunodeficiency.

GeneCards Summary for CD3G Gene
CD3G (CD3g Molecule, Gamma (CD3-TCR Complex)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD3G include t lymphocyte deficiency and enteropathy-associated t-cell lymphoma. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and receptor signaling complex scaffold activity. An important paralog of this gene is CD3D.
